DENVER -- Temperatures on Saturday afternoon will be nearly 20 degrees above average, topping off in the 60s and 70s across the Front Range.

Expect highs to stay in the 50s for the high country with plenty of sunshine. A few strong wind gusts will be possible, reaching as high as 20-25 mph in the Denver area.

Because of the the strong wind and dry conditions, a red flag warning has been issued for the Interstate 25 corridor and southeastern Plains on Saturday afternoon.

The next storm system will move into the state Sunday morning. Snow will start in the western half for the start of the day, moving into the central mountains by lunchtime.

In Denver, clouds will increase, but the majority of the city will stay dry. There is a slight chance that a few showers occur for the far western Denver metro area on Sunday afternoon and evening.

The storm will clear out of the state during the overnight hours.

Snowfall totals in the mountains will range from 4-8 inches. A winter weather advisory has been issued for the mountains until 9 a.m. Monday.

After the system passes, conditions remain dry for the upcoming work week statewide.

Highs will stay seasonal Monday and Tuesday, before jumping back into the 50s and 60s for the second half of the week.
